'She's Leaving Home'...

This is the first doll I have made for someone else. This doll is made for my 5 year old god daughter, Meeya.
She requested blonde hair and blue eyes and the clothes are mainly designed with a 5 year old in mind. The doll doesn't have a name yet, that is up to Meeya to decide.

Please say hello (and goodbye) to Meeya's blonde haired doll!

The pink dress is my own design, the blue and purple jacket is a modified pattern from AK Traditions and the shoes are a modified pattern from Fiona McDonald's 'Babes in the Wool' book.

The white nightie and slippers are designed by me, the robe is a slightly modified pattern from AK Traditions.

The purple pants, pink sneakers and pink scarf are designed by me. The hat is from the 'Babes in the Wool' book and the sweater is a slightly modified pattern from the same book.

The mini dress is from the 'Babes in the Wool' book, the shoes are my own pattern.

I decided to make a duplicate doll so that it wasn't so hard to let this one go... so there will be another blonde haired doll coming up soon (albeit with a completely different wardrobe). I'm also working on a gypsy, bohemian style doll plus another boy doll (the ladies need some more men!). As usual I am doing all of these projects at the same time, plus an extensive clothing collection so I have no idea which one will get posted first!

Until next time...


  1. Oh my! What a wonderful gift...such a beautiful doll, and a wardrobe to die for :-) Lovely work, from the heart.


  2. What a great doll and wardrobe! Your godaughter should love it. Better than a Barbie! :)

  3. Do tell us of your goddaughter's reaction. I wish it was me.
